Cardiff pub gets £1.4M facelift

After being closed for five years, the pub has been totally transformed with a huge investment to bring it well and truly back to life.

The Unicorn Inn has added a garden room with communal tables and a chef’s table for an immersive dining experience. This garden room features bi-fold doors that open onto a charming terrace. The pub also boasts a comfortable lounge and dining area, as well as a cozy locals’ bar.

For those who prefer al fresco dining, there are various seating options available. You can enjoy the new terrace or opt for picnic tables and benches nestled within the garden surroundings.

When it comes to the menu at The Unicorn, visitors can expect a selection of high quality traditional pub dishes while remaining affordably priced. Families will be pleased to find a special menu designed with children in mind.

“We’re delighted to have brought The Unicorn back to life – it’s now a stunning pub inside and out and is our flagship pub in Wales,” says Lawson Mountstevens, managing director of  Star Pubs & Bars. “With so much housing on its doorstep, local offices and a retail park nearby and no other pubs in the vicinity, the area is crying out for a pub like The Unicorn, which offers something for everyone. 

“The news of its reopening has so delighted residents that the church bell ringers are ringing the bells to celebrate its opening day. It will become the beating heart of the community, a place where residents can come together. It is also in walking distance for many, which plays into trends for people wanting to socialise locally.

“The Unicorn brings the investment that we have made in Wales in the last three years to over £4m and demonstrates our commitment to the Welsh economy.”
